The news of Urban Meyer stepping down as the head coach at the University of Florida has taken me by surprise. I didn’t see that one coming. I am not what you would call a Florida fan, but I greatly respect this man’s decision to step down.
It is so good to see that there are people who have a good understanding of what is important. College football is the greatest sport on the face of the earth, but it is just a game. A person’s faith and family are so much more important than a game that comes and goes.
Big kudos to Urban Meyer on having priorities straight. I hope that things go well and that he can return to the sidelines soon. I also hope that this lesson of proper priorities rubs to those players and other people in sports.
